A.A.C., Cascade Section

A.A.C., Cascade Section. The Annual Banquet for the Cascade Section was held at the Mountaineers’ Club Room on February 15, 1994 with guest speaker Seattle’s own Ed Viesturs, the only American to have climbed the three highest peaks of the world. He gave a presentation of his ascents of Everest, K2 and Kangchenjunga.

Members were active in a meeting on January 9 with National Park Service representatives from Washington, D.C., including Bonnie Cohen (Assistant Secretary for Policy, Budget and Management) and Dick Martin (Chief Ranger for Resource and Visitor Protection). Steve Swenson has been coordinating with Jed Williamson, local members, Seattle Mountaineers and the Access Fund to provide input on proposed climbing and rescue regulations. The Fall Rendezvous and Potluck, at which Dave Hambly talked of his ascent of Broad Peak last year, was a great success.
